First things first, the winner of my review copy of The Go-To Book for Irish Crochet Motifs by Kathryn White is “Sheeptricks” Denise, who has been emailed. Thanks to everyone who submitted a comment to be entered in the giveaway.
The Britta Cowl continues, and at this point I am just 9 rounds shy of the halfway point.
I keep meaning to show this:
This is a double ball yarn keeper, made by Chic-a. I have a number of their single ball yarn keepers and find them extremely useful. It’s a great way to keep your ball of yarn safe and clean, and out of the paws of inquisitive felines. And the double ball keeper is fantastic for 2-color projects, like my Britta Cowl.
There were a number of comments about the photo of Loki I posted in my last blog entry, re-posted here:
Loki is lying on the coffee table in my living room. He loves to snuggle up next to one or both of his humans on the couch, but he invariably gets up after a few minutes and moves to the coffee table. I think he gets too warm sitting next to a human.
The red “stick” that he is half lying on is one of his fishing pole toys that he had been playing with shortly before his impromptu nap.
The coaster is one of a set of four that was given to me as a gift. They are commercial coasters with pictures of cats on them and I have no idea who makes them — they are cork-backed so no information printing on the flip side.
Loki would like you to know that he also enjoys lying on end tables. The lighting in the photo is odd because the sun is going down and I did not use a flash.
